Josh Hancock from Horror Novel Reviews gave Who Spoke on the other Side a 4/5! Which a tad bit better than what The Stone Man and other Weird Tales received, a 3.5/5. The full review can be found below, but here’s an excerpt from the review.
Micah Castle’s Who Spoke on the Other Side has touches of everything that horror fans love: eerie locations, ghastly discoveries, unfathomable creatures, characters embroiled in horrific scenarios, and even a few moments of philosophical insight. This new collection is perfect for fans of H.P. Lovecraft or Karl Edward Wagner–and for anyone who longs to be transported into the ghoulish, ghostly world of the supernatural.

Crimson Streets was one of the first websites to feature my work, and they have been great to me, even when some of my stories didn’t work for their website.
Moving forward, they have released their first physical magazine, Crimson Streets #1: A Story A Week and Other Tales. It contains detective stories, weird tales, and nearly everything between the two. Moreover, it contains fantastic illustrations. (Also, contains my short story, “Confession.”)
It’s $15.99 USD, but it’s 304 pages long, so you definitely get your money’s worth. Purchase it on Amazon now!
